My 5 month old son started attending Lakeland Little Learners when he was 11 weeks old.  He is happy when we enter the building, and always smiles when he sees his daycare providers.  He is always clean and happy when we pick him up, and they provide a note about his day, when he ate, when his diapers were changed (always frequently and as needed, not just every two-three hours) and his mood.  Knowing he has a safe, fun, stimulating place to spend his day makes me feel better about going to work.
